Have you already found the products that suit your skin, but don’t know their correct order of application yet? We’ll tell you about it!
A skincare routine adapted to your needs and skin type is essential to boasting a healthy and bright complexion. It's equally important knowing the order in which one should apply each product to make the most of their properties.
Did you know that if you apply the cream before the concentrate, the latter won't penetrate the skin? And that applying sunscreen over makeup is not necessary?
This is a step-by-step guide for applying your skincare routine:
Step 1: Cleansing
Start with the basics: skin cleansing.
The surface of the skin is continuously exposed to external factors that can alter its appearance and cause imperfections, dull tone, irregular texture or premature aging. Therefore, one must keep the skin clean.
The cleansing solutions range features a cleanser suited to each skin type. In addition, they all include active ingredients that balance the skin's pH and provide an anti-pollution action, with the aim of protecting your skin with the utmost mildness.
Step 2: Exfoliation
Eliminate impurities and dead cells by carrying out an effective exfoliation.
Whether physical or chemical, exfoliation is an essential step in eliminating excess dead cells that cause dilated pores, wrinkles, dull tone, pimples or hyperpigmentation spots.
You should exfoliate your skin at least twice a week to attenuate all these imperfections, refine its texture and enhance its natural shine.
ultimate micropeel is the micro-exfoliating solution that gently renews the surface of the skin to remove dead cells, refine its texture and enhance its luminosity.
It's a very mild exfoliant, so you can use it on a daily basis, depending on the tolerance of your skin.
blemiderm resurfacing gel is a renewing gel made with salicylic and glycolic acid.
It's ideal for combination, oily and/or acne-prone skin, and you'll notice how it refines the pores and purifies and retexturises your skin.
Use this product at night, at least twice a week.
Step 3: Mask
Apply a mask specific for you. Haven't you found it yet?
Masks provide your skin with high doses of the specific active ingredients it needs. Whether you're looking to moisturise, sooth or purify your skin, there's a mask for you.
There are also exfoliating masks such as pure renewing mask, which is an intensive purifying mask that exfoliates and cleanses the pores to prevent skin imperfections. As it's a physical exfoliating mask, we recommend that you skip the previous step (step 2: exfoliation).
Do you have 15 minutes? That's all you need! Your skin will appreciate it.
